Cricket West Indies (CWI) has announced a total of 25 players who would take part in the upcoming training camp in Southampton ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup, including 10 reserve players who would act as cover ups for the squad.
After getting ignored from the final World Cup squad, experienced all-rounders Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo have also been named among reserve players for the tournament in England and Wales.
“The choice of players in the reserve list is to really cover our bases and ensure we have a good balance in the pool of players that can be selected if replacements are required. We think the skill-set in this pool is strong, with a good blend of experience and upcoming young players who can be ready to contribute if and when required,” said the chief selector.
Both the players are coming off a successful season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as they participated in the final of the event from opposing sides.
